Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) use is extremely low in India, and beyond. The reasons are multifactorial, including healthcare provider factors. This study examined CR perceptions among cardiologists in India. Attendees of the 2017 Cardiology Society of India conference completed a survey. Of 285 respondents, just over one-fourth had a CR program at their institution, with a similar proportion reporting someone dedicated to providing CR advice to their patients. Only 11 (3.9%) were correct in their responses to 4 multiple choice questions regarding secondary prevention...

BACKGROUND: There has been a push toward implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) in federally-funded hospitals under the current policies initiated by the Indian government, with a lack of evidence supporting their adoption. We analyzed data from the American College of Cardiology's PINNACLE (Practice Innovation and Clinical Excellence) India Quality Improvement Program (PIQIP) to evaluate the association between EHR use and quality of cardiovascular disease care in India. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between 2011-2016, we collected data on performance measures for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) among 17 participating practices in PIQIP...

Significant left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease is found in 5-6% of all patients undergoing coronary angiography. It usually presents as acute coronary syndrome and is commonly associated with multi-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD). Complete occlusion of LMCA is a much rarer finding, since these patients usually present as unstable angina, myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. We report a case of a young female, who presented with chronic stable angina and had an isolated chronic total occlusion (CTO) of LMCA with no lesions in the other coronary arteries...

In the year 2016, European Society of Cardiology/European Atherosclerosis Society (ESC/EAS) guidelines provided recommendations on dyslipidemia management. The recommendation from these guidelines are restricted to European subcontinent. To adapt the updated recommendations for Indian subset of dyslipidemia, a panel of experts in management of dyslipidemia provided their expert opinions. This document provides expert consensus on adapting 2016 ESC dyslipidemia guidelines recommendations in Indian setting. The document also discussed India-specific relevant literature to support the consensus opinions provided in management of dyslipidemia...

REVIEW
Abdullah Ebrahim Laher, Guy Richards
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a potentially life threatening clinical condition that is fairly non-specific in presentation. Massive pulmonary embolism (PE) without cardiac arrest has been associated with a mortality rate of 30%. However, when cardiac arrest ensues, mortality may be as high as 95%. Since outcomes of cardiac arrest following PE are generally dismal, any available potentially life-saving measure must be instituted when the diagnosis of PE is suspected. Despite a lack of randomized controlled trials guiding the management of suspected PE in the cardiac arrest victim, thrombolysis and other therapies have been associated with good outcomes in the handful of published case reports and other small studies...

South Asia has experienced a 73% increase in healthy life years lost due to ischemic heart disease between 1990 and 2010. There is a lack of quality data relating to cardiovascular risk factors and disease from this region. Several observational and prospective cohorts in South Asia have been established in recent times to evaluate the burden of cardiovascular disease and their risk factors. The Prospective Rural Urban Epidemiology (PURE) study is the largest of these studies that has provided data on social, environmental, behavioral and biologic risk factors that influence heart disease and diabetes...

REVIEW
Asit Das, Dhiman Kahali
Adverse hemodynamics of right ventricular (RV) pacing is known for years. Several studies have revealed that adverse outcomes of RV apical pacing are directly linked to cumulative percentage of ventricular pacing. Algorithms to minimize ventricular pacing are only effective if there is good atrioventricular (AV) conduction. A need for an alternate site for ventricular pacing is evident in patients with high presumed ventricular pacing burden. Most studied alternate site for ventricular pacing is ventricular septum (outflow tract septum and mid-septum)...

OBJECTIVE: Retrospective analysis of the feasibility, safety and results of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) stenting in low birth weight babies weighing < 2kg. BACKGROUND: Stenting of patent ductus arteriosus is a well known palliative technique for several years as an alternative to shunt surgery in babies weighing > 2.5-3kg. Ductal stenting in babies weighing less than 2kg is not done routinely all around the world due to limited experience and concerns regarding its feasibility and safety in such small subset...

OBJECTIVE: There are two most common incisions that are used during most pacemaker implantation procedures, with the first type of incision being inferior and parallel to the clavicle (Group C) and the second type of incision along the deltopectoral groove (Group D). We evaluated the scars resulting from the two types of incision to objectively evaluate the degree of superiority in cosmetic outcomes, between these two types of incisions. METHODS: Seventy-six patients who underwent left pre-pectoral pacemaker insertion were evaluated, close to 6 months after the date of the pacemaker implantation, using a simple scoring system based on atrophy, contour and colour of the scar...

BACKGROUND: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a common chronic disorder of childhood and adolescence. T1DM induced cardiomyopathy has a different entity than T2DM as it relies on different pathophysiological mechanisms, and rarely coexists with hypertension and obesity. Evaluation of right ventricular (RV) function in diabetic patients has been neglected despite the important contribution of RV to the overall cardiac function that affects the course and prognosis of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM)...
